In July, the Concord Free Public Library formed a Sustainability Committee to help guide the sustainability study process with GreenerU. The overall goal of this committee will be to develop the Corporation’s Sustainability Plan for the Main Library and Fowler Branch that aligns with the Town of Concord’s Climate Action and Resilience Plan backed by broad community support.
The Committee seeks to engage the public and gather input on climate action issues and sustainability to inform the plan. A baseline assessment was presented to the Committee in September, and then was shared for public input during Climate Preparedness Week later that month. The Committee has been hosting ongoing listening sessions with key stakeholder groups and plans to host additional community input sessions in early 2021.
